The Vindictive at Zeebrugge, 1918 (1919). Artist: Charles John De Lacy

The Vindictive at Zeebrugge, 1918 (1919). HMS Vindictive was a British Arrogant-class cruiser built at Chatham Dockyard. She was launched on 9 December 1897 and completed in 1899. In 1918 Vindictive was fitted out for the Zeebrugge Raid which took place on 23 April 1918. Most of the guns were replaced by howitzers, flame-throwers and mortars for the attack on the German-held Belgian port. Painting held at the Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth. From The Wonder Book of the Navy for Boys and Girls, by Harry Golding. [Ward, Lock & Co., Limited, London, Melbourne and Toronto, 1919]

Light echoes from exploding star Featured Print

Light echoes from exploding star

Light echoes from an exploding star. Hubble Space Telescope image of an illuminated dust shell around the star v838 Monocerotis. This star underwent a massive brightening in January 2002, temporarily becoming the brightest star in the galaxy. The light from this outburst reflects from a series of dust shells around the star, which are thought to have been ejected during previous activity. The phenomenon allows study of the fine structure of the dust shells, which could help explain why the star behaves as it does. This image was taken on 8th February 2004 by the Advanced Camera for Surveys

Gamma ray burst eruption

Gamma ray burst eruption. Image 5 of 5. Computer artwork of the jet (white) of a gamma ray burst, erupting from a star's surface (across bottom). This is based upon the collapsar theory of GRBs that says GRBs result from the collapse of the core of a massive star. A black hole forms when the core collapses. The spin or magnetic field of the black hole forms jets from material that is being ejected at near the speed of light. The jets are the source of the gamma rays of the GRB, a massive short-lived burst of energy that is 100s of times brighter than an ordinary supernova. For GRB formation, see images R670/148-152. For GRB jets, see images R670/153-154
